Burglar Takes Video Selfie With Homeowner's iPhone: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police asked for help Thursday in identifying a suspected burglar in Venice who accidentally took a selfie with his victim`s phone.


The burglar entered the home on Paloma Avenue through an unlocked side door at about 7 a.m. on July 11, according to a news release from the Los Angeles Police Department.

Two 15-year-old girls and a woman were sleeping in a nearby bedroom as the man went through the residence, the Police Department stated.

At one point, the burglar picked up an iPhone and accidentally activated a video application, which recorded him standing in the victims` living room."


Usually a selfie reveals a person`s vanity, but in this case it exposes his stupidity.

The hapless burglar took the iPhone with him, but the incriminating evidence was retrieved from the cloud.

If the owner had installed a tracking app on the iPhone this idiot would have been apprehended already, but something tells me it won`t be long before they catch him.

If anyone recognizes this moron with the gigantic flaring nostrils and the pea-sized brain they are encouraged to contact LAPD.
